Petty Officer Wilmot

Shipmate of the Week – MK1 Joseph Wilmot

Coast Guard Cutter Bainbridge Island was shorthanded and in need of an engineering petty officer. When the call for help was sent out, Petty Officer 1st Class Joseph Wilmot answered. A machinery technician by trade, Wilmot was no stranger to rolling up his sleeves and getting dirty. And that is just what he did aboard Bainbridge Island as he became responsible for the maintenance and repair of all machinery aboard the ship.
